Garmin(R) Introduces Sleek New Widescreen nuvi(R) Navigators

    OLATHE, Kan., June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Garmin International
 Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq:   GRMN), today announced the nuvi 200W
 and the nuvi 250W -- two new widescreen GPS navigators that are sleek
 looking, simple-to-use, and affordable.
     "Many customers want a larger display on their personal navigation
 device, and the nuvi 200W series delivers," said Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice
 president of worldwide sales. "The nuvi sets the industry standard for
 elegant design and a simplified user interface, and these newest units
 represent the pinnacle in widescreen entry-level PNDs."
     The nuvi 200W series boasts a bright, sunlight readable 4.3-inch color
 touchscreen display (480x272 pixels). Like other models in the 200 series,
 the nuvi's new design incorporates a high-sensitivity internal GPS antenna
 that makes it thinner and even easier to mount in a car. At startup, users
 are presented with Garmin's intuitive "Where to?" and "View map" welcome
 screen, allowing for quick searches of addresses or nearly six million
 points of interest like restaurants, hotels, attractions, gas stations, and
 more. Turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions guide the driver to their
 destination. The nuvi automatically recalculates a route and gets them back
 on track if they miss a turn along the way.
     The nuvi 200W and nuvi 250W also feature extras like a built-in picture
 viewer, calculator, currency converter, unit converter and world clock.
 Owners can also purchase invaluable Travel Guide(TM) and SaversGuide(R)
 databases to make their time on the road even more enjoyable and
 economical. For additional security, Garmin has included Garmin Lock(TM),
 an innovative patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit
 from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit
 PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location.
     Garmin has also added the ability for customers to augment the
 preloaded maps with custom points of interest (POI's) from third parties
 such as school zones and safety cameras. The European versions of the nuvi
 200-series come preloaded with speed camera information.
     The nuvi 200W and nuvi 250W are expected to be available in July 2007
 at an MSRP of $499.99 and $549.99, respectively. The nuvi 200W includes
 preloaded detailed mapping of the contiguous United States (lower 48),
 Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The nuvi 250W has preloaded detailed mapping of the
 entire United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada and Puerto Rico.
     Garmin will also offer nuvi 200-series products with regional specific
 coverage for Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Brazil. The
 regional coverage for Europe includes UK/Ireland, Nordics,
 Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg, France, Italy/Greece, Spain/Portugal, and
 Germany/Switzerland/Austria/Czech Republic.
     Both versions include a vehicle suction cup mount, vehicle power cable,
 dashboard disk, and quick start manual. For more information, visit
